A Beginners' Guide to CSS Backgrounds Support

Backgrounds are one of the cornerstones of CSS-based design. At a basic level they allow you to put some colour or an image behind your elements. Sure, that doesn't sound too fancy. But once you get the hang of applying backgrounds to boxes you'll have a tool that is flexible and powerful.

In this tutorial Matt is going to take us through the basics of CSS backgrounds, how they work and some techniques that make them useful. In particular he'll be focusing on how to use them in Dreamweaver MX 2004.
